O. Smoot Company.  They arrived in the Salt Lake Valley on 3 September 1852.  The brothers became separated and never met again.              Her parents settled in Provo, Utah, Utah Territory and lived there for seven years.  They had six children, three girls and three boys.  The first two were born in Provo, Utah, Utah Territory.  George Jr. was born 2 March 1853 and James Sykes was born 2 April 1855 and he died 2 September 1855.  Julia Ellen was born 21 August 1856.             The ywere called to help settle Goshen in 1859. They lived there for five years, and then returned to Provo.  Emily Isabel was born 16 November 1859; Sarah Annie was born 10 November 1860;and John Ernest Sykes was born 18 September 1864.             Her father was a butcher and killed and dressed beef for merchants in and around Provo.  He bought a farm two miles north of Provo.  The Indians were very troublesome at that time so the family lived in town.  George Jr. helped his father on the farm.  They raised wheat, corn, potatoes and other crops.  Her father died on 18 October 1870, from a scratch on his arm that he had received from an animal kicking him and blood poisoning set in.    After her father died, George Jr. took over the farm and supported his mother, brothers, and sisters.  George was only 17 when he died and took on the responsibility caring for the family.              Emily married William Bullock on 25 November 1880 in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, Utah Territory at the age of 21.  William was born 30 August 1859 in Provo,Utah, Utah Territory to Isaac and Emma Stott Bullock.  He was also 21 years old.  He was baptized into the Church on 22 September 1867 at the age of eight.              William traveled to Utah Territory in 1852.  His father was the captain of the Isaac Bullock Company.   It is not known when the company left but the outfitting post was at Kanesville, Iowa (present day Council Bluffs).   Cholera broke out shortly after they left and some 10 to 12 in the company died from the dreaded disease.              William Whitehead Taylor was in the company and drove one of the wagons for Isaac.  He wrote: “We were then in a wild country where we had to contend with the Indians and the buffalo. We  travel from morning until in the afternoon,and then camp early enough so we could herd our cattle and let them get a good feed before dark, for we would have to stake them with a short rope within our circle of wagons at night. In the morning we would again let them have a good feed before starting.  When we were about six or seven hundred miles on the way across the plains we divided into four companies-ten wagons in each company, and putting one days drive between each small company. In this way we traveled on to Salt Lake City, and on into Provo.The captain, whose name was Isaac Bullock, did not wish to stay in Salt Lake City. I was still driving his team and so went on with them.”   They reached the Salt Lake valley on 21 September 1852.             They settled in Provo, Utah, Utah Territory. As a teenager he ran the family farm while his father was a missionary in the Midwest.  His father was imprisoned in the Utah Territorial Penitentiary for his role in polygamy.  William managed to pay his father’s $300.00 federal fine in 1887.               William and Emily had eleven children, four girls and seven boys, all born in Provo, Utah, Utah.   William Ekins was born 21 September 1881;George Ray was born in July 1883; Roy M. was born 2 July 1885; Charles was born 27 August 1885 and died 10 December 1892; Maud was born 2 January 1888; Elanor was born 8 October 1889; James Edwin was born 17 September 1891; Jane was born in 1892; Lyman was born 3 December 1893; Clarence Scott was born 28 September 1895; and LePreal was born 26 October 1901.              William died on 10 August 1907 in Alberta, Alberta, Canada of vascular heart disease.  He was buried in Provo, Utah,Utah.  He was only 47 when he died.             Emily died 16 October 1943 in Provo, Utah, Utah at the age of 83 and was buried 20 October 1943.
